I am experiencing out of memory error while starting 7.3 pega on VMware Fusion. I am using macbook pro (2015 edition) with 8 GB RAM. I have attached the error for reference. Any idea on fixing this error please.
Try to increase also your RAM to 6GB or better 8GB which is usually preconfigured with 4GB.
But I'm wondering why so may are having the same problem now with the VMs given by the accademy course. I suggest to address this directly to the pega accademy team as I thing there might be another deeper problem.
1. Miss configuraiton of elastic search which is starting with indexing as soon you start Pega initially and allovates to much resources.
2. Backgroundagents which shouldn't run in the exercise environemnt.
Hi WIhelm, Many thanks for your reply - I have logged in to the root and have also navigated to the folder /opt/tomcat/bin .. but how do I open setenv.bat file ? also how do I increase the heapsize. please help
I had the same problem and increased the memory to 8gb and checked "Enable Hypervisor applications in this virtual machine" on my VMWare Fusion.
Now it is working ok and not throwing OOM exceptions.
One interesting thing is that It is working fine with 4096m on my VirtualBox. Not sure if it is running with hypervisor but 4096m is seems working with VirtualBox. I prefer to use VMWare fusion because the Symantec end point protection gets mad when I run the SAME virtual machine with VirtualBox.
I get OOM exceptions with same settings on Fusion...then increased the memory and marked Hypervisor enabled... not sure If the amount of the memory or the hypervisor fixed the issue.
